Orpington business goes for gold

A business has won an award aiming to celebrate company quality.
Jon and Cheryl Yee’s Cartridge World store in Fairway, Orpington, is one of only three in the UK to achieve the company’s “Gold Standard”, a company quality benchmark.
Jon said: “It’s essential that all my customers are confident about the quality of our products. Having the “Gold Standard” does that. It shows that our printer cartridges – both ink and laser – meet the highest standards.
“Printer manufacturers’ own brand cartridges are very expensive; bargain basement ones tend to be poor quality. Using the “Gold Standard”, Cartridge World Orpington produce printer cartridges that are a good value, quality guaranteed alternative to both.”
To achieve the “Gold Standard” Jon’s Technical Manager, Jeff Aungier, had to prove that the store’s printer cartridges met Cartridge World’s quality requirement in terms of print performance, build quality and packaging.
Jon added: “Achieving ‘Gold Standard is great news for my business and I certainly couldn’t have done it without the full support of my staff here at Orpington.
“Quality has always been a priority for us. It’s about my team using Cartridge World’s quality processes and systems. They’ve become integral to what we do here. When one of our cartridges went through the ‘Gold Standard’ test we found that the print quality was just as good after it had produced a thousand copies. I must say, even I was impressed!”
